Recon they are doing a large capacity increase?

They only added the Ragnarok camp last year and the 1 time I wandered into it the place was more than half empty

Ah yeah would be a good idea if they are adding a bigger/2nd entrance as getting in last year was a fucking nightmare for a lot of people

It'll be where the campervans have been (since they're being move to over the road from VIP). Would be surprised about another entrance as the insurance people would have a fit.

They changed that a couple of years back, last couple you needed to go through what was the old drop off to get to the vans. That area is right behind Ironwood so that's why I'm guessing that'll be where the new camp is.

Interesting as Ragnarok was half empty last year (and probably quieter than Hel!) despite it being a sell out. Last I heard, they are only increasing capacity to 18,500 so a 3,500 increase. I guess adding an extra camp ensures their backs are covered though and means we aren't too cramped in!

There's a field between Ironwood and the road, I'm guessing that's going to be Jotunheim. Seems a bit premature as the new one they opened last year was fairly empty.

They said "in a few weeks" back in May so no idea at this point
